I have been working at VMware full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Good place to learn
- Emphasis on giving back to society
- Good facilities and campus

Cons

-Frequent management changes or restructuring
-No real career planning for level
-Certain times no communication
-Work hard (but rewards don't go with the hard work)
- Benefits not to Industry standards for tenured employees
-Very slow promotion process, easier to get promoted by leaving. also very minimal pay increase year over year
- Groupism at Management layer

Advice to Management

-Senior management not accessible much, only on certain occasions.
-the number one things I'm unhappy with is the lack of opportunity to try a different role or to move up in the company. growth is so hard to find here.
- Build an employee career plan that keeps existing employee close to the level of benefits they would receive if they just joined based on market condition and qualifications. if you won't do that, someone else will.

    Pros

    The company is still very much growing. It owns the virtualization market and this should enable it to grow for the next several years.

    Cons

    VMware has been late getting into the cloud. There is now a good VMware cloud solution but VMware is behind Amazon in this area.


  2. "Fun and interesting, but also frenetic"
